Premier League-winning striker Chris Sutton says it is “hard to see a future” for Tanguy Ndombele at Tottenham after he was booed by Spurs supporters in Sunday’s FA Cup third round win against Morecambe.
Ndombele, who cost Spurs a club record £53.8m in 2019, was jeered as he walked slowly off the pitch while they were still 1-0 down against the League One side.
“As soon as he did that it became about him and moping around,” said Sutton.
“It’s not done him any favours.”
Talking on BBC 5 Live’s Monday Night Club, former Blackburn, Celtic and Chelsea forward Sutton added Ndombele “failed to read the room” at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“There is no excuse in that situation yesterday to walk off that pitch slowly when your team is losing. That is not understanding what the club is about or what the supporters want,” he said.
“His team was losing an FA Cup tie, they were being humiliated.
“This goes against Ndombele. When things like that happen, it’s hard to see him have future at Spurs.”
